Expedition Amelia (In the Deep Ocean)

Sonar searching for Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Aircraft in 18,000 feet of Pacific Ocean

An Alternative to the Nikumaroro hypothesis, the deep ocean near Howland Island is the final resting place of Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Electra according to a group of researchers.

In a little publicized mission off the tiny Island of Howland a group called Howland Landing Ltd. mapped over 600 square miles of ocean bottom near the site of Amelia Earhart's intended landing spot at a depth of 18,000 feet. A month of hard work and close examination of the ocean floor produced this target, one of four unusual images the team found that may be the final resting place of Amelia Earhart, Fred Noonan and Amelia's Lockheed Electra airplane.

"Over 30 years of searching the island of Gardner, now known as Nikumaroro by various groups continue to prove she is not there," said former America's Cup sailor and Managing Director of Howland Landing Ltd, Dana Timmer. "On the day she disappeared, July 2, 1937, and based upon the signal strength of her last broadcasts indicate she was just about out of fuel and in the vicinity of her intended destination, Howland Island. We believe she ditched nearby. Unfortunately the water off Howland Island is deep, very deep."

The search was mobilized in the Marshall Islands and conducted by Williamson & Associates the world renown deep-water sonar company that found the multi-million dollar gold wreck, "SS Central America", the Israeli submarine, "Dakar", the Apollo 11 booster rockets for Jeff Bezos and many other historic losses.

"Most groups go where it is cheap and easy to "maybe" find something and that's in shallow water or on land," said Mike Williamson. "The odds that Amelia Earhart made her way to one of the few islands or shallow spots in a whole ocean of deep-water while running out of fuel are slim to none. Dana used the hard evidence and his years of flying and marine experience to put us on the right path to finding her. And we may have done that already."

Timmer added, "We are hoping to go back verify targets, prove our theory and bring Amelia home."
